Lemon Baked Donuts

Lemon Baked Donuts

It has been so rainy and dreary this last week and while I love a good thunderstorm and a cozy rainy day, several in a row are getting old. So I decided to make a light, fresh and sunshiny treat. What is more sunshiny than lemon? And what is more light and fresh than a baked donut?

I love a good donut. My husband got me Hurts Donuts for Mother's Day. I may have strongly hinted he get some through multiple texts. Sometimes a girl really needs donuts. So we had yummy over the top donuts on Mother's Day and I've had them on my mind ever since. Enter lemon donuts. 

These are incredibly easy and have the most amazing lemon flavor. I am obsessed right now. I used a donut pan, but if you do not have one then you can use a cupcake tin as well and just add a minute or two to the baking time. The glaze is the best part. Powdered sugar and lemon juice, that's it. And they are baked, so in my mind, that means I can eat 6 and not feel bad. That calorie math adds up, right? Of course it does.

This is a great baked donut base dough (that is a tough one to say, whew) that you can add any flavor your little heart desires. Blueberry? Chocolate or Strawberry? Oh my. (Sorry, had to). 

These  little lemony bites of goodness are a perfect summer treat when you want something different than chocolate. And easy, which is always what I'm striving for. I need to just make my site called "stuff to make while a baby is napping."

What are your favorite summer flavors? Leave a comment and let me know. Are you a fan of lemon desserts?
